ERIE, PA – Beth Manganaro scored one goal in the first half and another in the second to lead the Penn State Behrend women’s soccer team to a 2-0 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) win over Hilbert College. Wednesday’s loss drops the Hawks to 6-5-2 overall and 2-3-2 in conference play.

Manganaro’s first goal at 29:28 gave the home team a 1-0 lead and the advantage going into the second half. The sophomore forward gave the Behrend Lions some insurance with her ninth goal of the season at 74:45 to ice the win. The victory is Penn State Behrend’s seventh in their last eight outings and improves the Behrend Lions to 10-4-1 overall and 7-1 in the AMCC.

Hilbert’s Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) recorded 14 saves in a losing effort for the Hawks.

Hilbert will return to action this weekend with an important AMCC contest at home against La Roche College (6-7-2, 4-1-2). Start time against the Redhawks is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
